You know the demand for laptops is clearly on the rise when even Europe is seeing new OEMs popping up. Breaking into the global market directly with Windows-based models might be tough, so the new OEMs from Europe are also focusing on GNU / Linux systems. Just like  Germany has the Schenker / XMG OEM with the Tuxedo subsidiary, Spain offers similar solutions through its relatively new Slimbook OEM. Apart from catering both for the Windows and Linux crowds, Slimbook also focuses to stay true to its name and deliver lightweight but powerful notebooks, and this can easily be seen with the new Executive models that feature Intel Tiger Lake-U processors packed in a 14-inch chassis that weighs only 2.2 lbs (1 kg) and is 0.59-inch (15 mm) thick.

As with most slim and light models, the Slimbook Executive is geared more towards premium users. The magnesium alloy chassis appears to be made by Tongfang and is identical with those from Schenker Vision 14 and Tuxedo InfinityBook Pro, but the default price is noticeably higher. This is because Slimbook is including more advanced features like a 2880 x 1800 16:10 LTPS screen with 90 Hz refresh rate, 400 nit maximum brightness and 99% sRGB color gamut. It also comes equipped with the Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU integrating an Iris Xe iGPU, which can be coupled with up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 4 TB of SSD storage through two M.2 slots.

Port selection includes a Thunderbolt 4 connector, USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 with DP mode plus 2x USB-A 3.0, HDMI 2.0b video output, card reader and a 2-in-1 audio jack. Other features include a 720p webcam with IR sensor, Wi-Fi 6 + BT 5.1 module. Slimbook does not mention the exact battery capacity, but we suspect this is around 53 Wh like on the Schenker and Tuxedo models.

The base configuration includes 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD and is priced at 1299 Euro ($1540), while the full feature model (with Win 10 Pro) costs 2856 Euro ($3400). Users can also choose among free Linux distros like Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Elementary OS, Linux Mint, Manjero, KDE neon, Fedora or even a dual-boot with Win 10 Home / Pro and the preferred Linux distro.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
